Hobart Supplemental Security Income Lawyer
Supplemental Security Income (SSI, also known as Title 16) is different from Social Security Disability (SSD):
- SSD is an insurance program that you pay into over the course of your work life. You help fund it.
- SSI is a federal income supplement program funded by everyone who pays taxes. It is designed for people who have a physical or mental disability but have not paid into Social Security.
To qualify for SSI, you must be 65 or older, and either blind or disabled. Your income and personal resources must be limited. Your disability must be expected to last at least 12 months or be projected to result in death. And you must be able to prove these things on paper.
